    Nothing too major at the moment, Going to sort the head unit out, put some pressed plates on. I've already put some Bosh aero wipers on.

    The car already had a single mass flywheel and clutch on it, seems quick at the moment but may consider a remap.

    EDIT: Headlights need a clean as cloudy on the inside

    I would definitely recommend a remap, it made a world of difference on my a3 and a lot of people have said it does the same to an s3

    How does a remap on a S3 effect the fuel consumption?

    + Cheers for the reception

    from what i've been told it should be a bit better if you are cruising, you'll have a lead foot for the first few weeks though! makes the car a lot more lively

    Also that is definitely the best colour, same as my a3. i did have the same wheels as well but recently changed.

    I bet it does, my mate had a remap to 265BHP and he loved it, but fuel got so much he sold it..

    Welcome to S3 ownership :)

    How far south west are you ? There's a great bunch of lads on Audi Addicts down the deepest corner of Cornwall

    Are you half man half lizard and really big.
    Or do you own a giant lizard?
    Car looks awesome mate. Nice colour and tidy.
    And for the love of god just map it!!!!!
    Why do people worry so much about fuel? I couldnt have my car standard now. Drive me mad.

    Maps on the cards, compared to what im used to i mean the car is rapid.

    I started off with a 1996 1.6L polo, then a 2004 110BHP diesel Seat Leon and now im 20 with a S3 and love it! :D
